Saw the FA fullbodies and HC Canadas

Postby ks_waterfowler » Sat Oct 29, 2005 6:10 pm

Got a first hand look at the FA fullbodies. They look much better than in the catalogs. The paint was very tough. Passed the fingernail and key test. Flocking seems to be very well done. Very nice decoy.

Drawbacks- Smaller than GHG or Bigfoots, and I didn't like the weighted footbase at all. Also didn't like the way they come prepacked with 2 feeders, 1 active, 1 sentry. Would have rather had all actives.

HC canadas I was very disappointed with. I personally thought the ones I saw at Cabelas looked like crap. GHG blew them away. Maybe the others are better but I wouldn't have bought these.

Also Picked us 1 dozen G&H goose floaters and 4 bigfoots at ****'s in KC (the one that was galyans). Got $10 off my $300 purchase. They had lots of G&H and Bigfoots. Also had flambeau and carrylite divers fairly cheap.
